Child moved into our house, should dad still pay the mother child support

Q) My husband is ordered to pay child support and he is paying every week. As of October 9 his child moved into our house with us. He is still paying the mother child support. The child is 18 out of school and working full time. What can we do to stop the child support from going to the mother. Or can we stop the child support?

A) You and your husband need to contact the nearest child support enforcement office and inform them of the change in his child status and request a Modification of the existing child support order. It would not be wise to stop paying before changes to the order has been made.

  1. Your child support payments can be changed only by a court’s modification order. The modification process can increase or decrease payments. The ways you can lower child support payments will vary by circumstance. You will need to convince a court that the financial situation of one or both of the parents has changed substantially generally. To lower your payments, you will need to file a motion in court to modify your child support payments. Most courts have pre-printed “fill in the blank” motion forms You will need to file this motion in the court that issued the initial child support order.
